The Importance of Choosing the Right Fit for Your Post-Surgical Bra

Finding the perfect post-surgical bra is a crucial step in your recovery journey. A well-fitted recovery bra not only provides comfort but also helps relieve post-op swelling and promotes proper healing. Here's a useful guide to help you find the right fit for you:

Measuring for Your Bra:

  • Band Size: Measure your under-bust circumference, keeping the tape straight and snug against your body for a secure fit.
  • Cup Size: Measure from the centre of your back to the centre of your chest across the fullest part of your breast. Keep the tape slightly loose to avoid tightness, then double the measurement to determine your cup size.

Refer to our sizing chart below to find your equivalent band and cup size. Table I will show you your band size, and Table II will help you find your cup measurement. Keep in mind that post-surgery swelling may result in a reduction of breast size once the surgical tissue settles.



 Post-Surgery Comfort and Convenience:

  • Underarm Fit: Ensure the underarm area is not too tight in case of swelling. Loose straps and cups around the underarms allow for proper lymphatic fluid drainage.
  • Band Tightness: The band should provide firm, even pressure around the chest. Adjust as necessary to prevent riding up when lifting your arms.
  • Shoulder Straps: Adjust straps securely without digging into the shoulders. Primary support should come from the band.
  • Front-Facing Adjustments: Front-facing adjustments such as zips and hooks accommodate fluctuating swelling of the breasts and scar tissue, making your healing process more comfortable.
  • Prioritise Comfort: A well-fitted bra minimises discomfort and promotes healing. The Cara Post Surgery bra is designed for maximum comfort, featuring front-facing hook and zip fastening, adjustable shoulder straps, and highly elasticated, double-layered fabric for strong yet flexible support.

Finding the perfect post-surgical bra may take some trial and error, but prioritising comfort and support is essential for a smooth recovery journey. Choose a bra that meets your needs and provides the comfort and stability necessary for optimal healing.
